What’s So Good About Rehearsed Readings?

The Oast Theatre group in Kent recently arranged a rehearsed reading for one of my new plays. I had no previous connection with the group – I had simply sent off something I was working on after seeing a call for One Act submissions. When they said they had selected mine – working title ‘What you Are’, I was delighted. I was also scared. Not only would complete strangers be reading my play (eek) but I had to drive on the M25 to get there! (When it comes to motorway driving, I’m of a very nervous disposition.)

Snow White’s Got Talent

Let’s get the obligatory joke out the way: My husband hates the pantomime. Oh no he doesn’t. Well yes, actually he does. Incredible, isn’t it?!

I don’t know what really gets his goat: I think he is afraid of interaction: The idea that Widow Twanky might end up on his lap. Or that he’ll end up on a winch with Tinkerbell.

So last year, when Principal Girl Productions asked me to write a pantomime script and I said, ‘Whooppeee, you betcha!’ put it this way: he wasn’t thrilled. (Oh no he wasn’t.)
